Mysteries for Class
Mystery patterns for class use are sold in packets of nine (minimum)
or more patterns. The cost is $5.50 per pattern.
information, except supply lists and cutting information is in sealed
envelopes so that the coordinator or instructor can play along, if desired.
Usually, the instructor does the mystery on her own, then has the model
and expertise for teaching the class.
Patterns require basic rotary cutting and machine piecing skills. Techniques
are diverse, interesting, simple, and precise. No pattern contains applique,
curved seams, Y-seams, or similar challenges.
Each mystery packet contains all of the following:
These pages list fabric requirements, tools, and supplies needed for the

There is one copy for each pattern ordered. Participants should
be given both the supply list and cutting instructions upon paying
for the class so they will have the cutting done before arriving.
Numbered and sealed envelopes
The envelopes contain the instructions. Envelope #1 contains an instruction
sheet for each participant, i.e., if you ordered the minimum, there would
be nine instruction sheets in the envelope. The number of steps vary from
six to eighteen among the mystery patterns. The number of steps has nothing
to do with the skill level or the length of time it takes to make the
quilt. That information can be found in the description of each pattern.
For obvious reasons there is no picture brochure for the mystery patterns.
While attending Quilt Market you may come by my booth to view a graphic
of each pattern prior to ordering. If you do not attend Quilt Market,
contact us for assistance in selecting a suitable pattern for your needs.
We provide information about the size, skill level, etc. The
time suggested to allow for class is the minimum and does not
take into account the cutting, which is usually done prior to
class. With few exceptions, quilters will not be able to complete
the quilt during class. Allow more time or sessions if your desire
is that they go home with everything done in one piece.
